What are some common uses for 3D scans?
Apparel and E-Commerce
Create 1 to 1 meshes of your apparel items for e-commerce, inventory, or team collaborations.
Share your gallery with the world with life-like digital copies. Whether for AR, VR, or a 3D print to hold in your hand. Creating digital archives ensures these items will live on forever.
For your latest art piece, video game assets, NFTs, or simply to make more space in your warehouse! The world is becoming digital and we're here to help you adjust.
Using structure light scanners and photogrammetry, we can create extremely high-quality copies in both shape and color to save as a mesh for rendering or modeling.
Mesh Editing + File Prep
Organize and edit your existing meshes so they work better for you, your team, and your customers.
Digital Product Integration
Turn your physical inventory digital with large-scale product scanning. We'll work with you to organize the data to work best for your project's needs.
Arkify Project Timeline
We'll start with an online meeting or phone call to discuss how we can best help you accomplish your project’s goals.
Based on your location and project size, we'll find the best way to gather your items to scan. Either through mailing to our studio or meeting on-site.
Gather & Scan
We’ll process the data and organize the project files to your liking.
You’ll be provided with a simple download to access your completed files.
If at any time you’re not satisfied with the deliverable, we’ll rescan and reprocess the data free of charge. We want to ensure you’re walking away from this experience with exactly what you need!

What file types can I receive?
Our most common exports are STL and OBJ, but we can send you any of the following file types:
OBJ, STL, WRL, PLY, XYZ, RBG, E57, PTX, FBX, X3D, USD
What is a typical turnaround time?
On average it can take 1-3 days upon receiving the object to create the finished meshes. Every project is unique however and larger objects can take longer to process. To help us estimate a turn around time we suggest sending a photo of what you'd like scanned.
Can you scan shiny or clear objects?
Most structured light scanners have trouble with these, but we have special sprays we can use to make them scannable.
Can you scan body parts?
Yes, we can scan most body parts! At this time, Arkify is not able to scan an entire body at once, and can only scan in parts (e.g. hands, feet, faces).
Do I have to live in Portland to receive 3D scanning services?
Not at all! While we are based in Portland, our team is able to receive and send shipped items from anywhere in the US.
Can you scan at our location?
We operate in the Pacific Northwest (based in Portland Oregon) and are able to travel for larger jobs.
